Strategy for All 3 Pillars of the Cloud

—By Chris Murphy, Director of Cloud Content at Oracle

Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison zeroed in on two points of focus for the company as it enters its fiscal year 2017: Grow Oracle's cloud software and platform businesses at double the rate of its closest competitors, and use "generation two" of the company's high-performance data centers to become an even more formidable player in cloud infrastructure. "We're growing fast in SaaS. We're growing fast in PaaS. Now we need to grow fast in infrastructure as a service," Ellison said on Oracle's Q4 FY 2016 earnings call on June 16. 

In SaaS and PaaS, Oracle plans to drive growth with a broader product line than its major cloud competitors and by reaching a new swath of midmarket companies. In IaaS, Oracle plans to use its new data centers to gain a performance advantage. Read more about Ellison's view on each of these three pillars of cloud computing—SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS—and how they complement one another.
